PLAYING FOR TIME tells the extraordinary story of the women’s orchestra in Auschwitz .  It centres on Fania Fenelon, a Parisian singer, who is arrested by the Nazis, sent to Auschwitz and there finds herself swept into the orchestra, composed entirely of women prisoners and created to entertain the camp commandants. 

As long as the orchestra finds favour, its members are spared the gas chambers.  They are, quite literally, playing for time.

Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions
